Welcome back Snowman!

when I think of the 911 motor it seems to me that the list of non critical torque values is shorter than the list of critical torque values.

you mentioned rod bolts, and possibly head bolts. what about the cam towers? if they're not all very close to equal your cam will bind. I know that only necessitates the use of a torque wrench and not the value but It's still critical. how 'bout case through bolts? it they're not all pretty close to the same and at a specific value your main bearing clearences will be compromised and vary from journal to journal. It took me about 0.2 seconds to come up with those two so I'm sure the list gets longer.

and then there's torque sequence....

bottom line, if this guy doesn't have the data, don't let him learn on your car.

again...welcome back snowman
